The forces affiliated with Libya's internationally-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) announced that they repelled an attack by Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) in Khalla, southern Tripoli, as the battle to control the Libyan capital enters its ninth month.
Officials from Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army announced that they are launching the final stage of Tripoli operations and have made numerous gains around the Libyan capital. These claims, however, have been tempered by realities on the ground, as the stalemated enters its eighth month.
Spokesperson for Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) says over 200 people will be put on trial for terrorism charges. Human rights organisations have expressed their concerns over whether they will be fair.
